What Is Keto?

Full Disclosure: This is copied directly from the Keto Subreddit. They did a lot of great work and it will be impossible to create anything more comprehensive as this. Please visit at: The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet. It has a lot of health advantages compared to the standard western diet. Most people do keto because of the weight loss, but it also has other health advantages like lowering risk for heart disease, diabetes, cancer, stroke, and much more. Just follow these simple rules: Low in Carbs Less than 50g/day for most people, better below 20g. Fiber isn't counted in your carbs. Vegetables are perfectly acceptable. Moderate Protein Enough Fat Majority of energy Variable depending on goals of weight loss or maintenance The Right Kinds of Fat Eat monos and saturates for fuel (butter, olive oil, coconut oil) Limit high polyunsaturated sources (soy, corn, cottonseed) Keto Flu Supplement sodium 2g/day (e.g. drink 1-2 cups of broth per day) Replace magnesium to stop muscle cramps Drink lots of water When in Doubt, Eat Less Carbs When in Doubt, Eat More Fat The Standard Approach What is the premise of a low carb, keto diet?

    Here are my 90 day pics. Down 22# but have literally been stuck there for 3 weeks.

    Can't deny the progress but was hoping for some more consistent progress. A bit afraid of fasting, so any direction from "lifers" would be appreciated.

    you should probably put this in the "Stall Point" sub category, as that's what your topic is about.

    In any case, can you provide some more information about what you are doing?
    Are you tracking what you eat, macros, etc?
    Have you adjusted what you eat based on your new bodyweight/lbm etc?

    You will continue to lose with keto, just at a slower pace. Hitting plateaus, and then seeing another weight reduction is very common. But, it takes patience. Some people have to wait weeks or months to see the needle move again. This is because your body is "moving furniture around" if I may use that analogy.
    To move the needle much faster, fasting is employed to set autophagy at a more rapid pace. For instance, your body needs to now get rid of the extra skin that went around your tummy. With keto alone, it is slower. By fasting, the autophagy of the unneeded skin cells is accelerated.
    Here's the diagram at this link
    227 that I use to express this sort of dynamic. The longer the fasting window, the more weight loss. And then keto helps to sustain your weight loss. If the only fasting you are doing is a couple of hours between meals, then the rock is barely rolled up the hill. A longer fasting window induces greater weightloss, and then you can use keto to sustain your loss.

    So, the question becomes this: are you okay with slow weightloss, or do you want a more rapid approach to your target weight? Either answer is ok. Just need to be honest with yourself with what you want to do. It is completely normal to plateau on keto, and then experience slower weightloss. But, you need to be ok with this. If not, then fasting is another strategy you may want to try.
